The Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS STM Lens is a versatile mid to long range zoom that delivers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 88-400mm, making it ideal for applications ranging from majestic landscapes to stunning up-close portraits.
Built-in Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) provides up to 3.5 stops of handheld camera shake compensation to expand your low-light photography potential. An STM stepping focus motor is ideal for situations where minimal noise is a priority alongside quick and smooth focusing performance. Full manual control is available for optimal fine tuning when necessary, even while operating in AF modes.
This lens utilizes an ultra-low dispersion (UD) glass element to minimise chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the entire zoom range while simultaneously enhancing image contrast and clarity. Optimized lens coatings ensure superb colour fidelity by negating unwanted lens flare and ghosting.
A seven-bladed circular aperture produces a gorgeous out-of-focus effect that is desirable in portraiture and when your subject in focus needs to stand out from the background.
For all your mid to long range photographic needs, the Canon EF-S 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS STM is an ideal lens that will add value to your photographic kit.
